Parsons Way Trail

Parsons Way Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A cliff walk around the bold shorefront of Cape Arundel to Spouting Rock and Blowing Cave, with dramatic views of the ocean. Parsons Way is named after Henry Parsons, who gave the land to Kennebunkport “so that everyone may enjoy its natural beauty.”

We’ve met a few power walkers on Parsons Way, but this is a walk meant for dallying, so you can savor the surf, the spouting sea clefts, and the ever-changing views as you round Cape Arundel. Special Features: high surf and ocean spray, wave-carved blowholes, and long coastline views."

This is really a walk, not a hike. I enjoyed it though. I meandered around the beaches and made my way to hidden benches and was able to just relax and listen to the surf. Good time of year to go. Road was very quiet as opposed to other times of the year, I am sure. Walked passed St. Anne's Church-a little bummed that it was gated up. Still so beautiful. Made it to the Bush family home. Interesting how you can stand in the driveway of a former US president and just hang out. Power walked my way back to my car-had to get a little workout in.

It's not a hike at all. A little stroll on a sidewalk. You see some nice houses and a little bit (not so spectacular) from the shore. At the end you can take a look at the Bush house. Nice walk but nothing spectacular.

Although this "stroll" is very pretty, one could hardly call it a "trail" It is really just a quick walk down a populated sidewalk to the Bush compound. If you're looking for strenuous exercise, keep looking. If you would just like a quick walk that will not get you overexerted, here's your trail.
